Next, you should look for antique dealers that have specific skills in purchasing antique end tables. Antique dealers who specify in tables, will know best what they are looking for in tables as they make purchases.
Choosing the perfect end table can be a very personal choice, and well it should be, given the tremendous selection that is out in the marketplace these days.
When selecting end tables of metal, be sure you shop with a reputable seller who handles quality products. There may be a reason why you to such a good deal on a metal table. The metal welds may be inferior, the fit may not be good between the different pieces and the materials themselves may not be high quality, causing the finish to flake off within months of your purchase. As with any piece of furniture, end tables are a major investment and you want to make sure that you are getting top quality for the budget you have available. You certainly don't want to fall in love with a set of end tables that are the perfect fit for your room, only to have them fall apart on you.
Next, you need to make sure those table cloths stay on the square end tables. If you are holding a spring/summer party like many do, you will have doors open to the outside. That means there is a risk for gusts of wind to breeze through the house. While this may feel great on the skin, this is not so healthy for those square end tables with little tablecloths. The tablecloths may well try to fly away, unless you have a way to weight them down.
Most end tables hold a lamp for reading. Check the height of your lamps and determine how high a tabletop you need. If you will be using your lamp only for general lighting, you've got more leeway with your choices.
If you're looking for additional surface area in your home, or if you want to accentuate your lighting or add to your décor, an end table is what you need.
